Who's On The Mat



From The Heart

I have owned many types of yoga mats. I was never completely satisfied with any of them because they were either too short, too thin or not grippy enough. A few years ago I was gifted a 85" Manduka PRO mat by my wife. Honestly, I can't think of a better gift! The Manduka PRO fills all my needs and is the best mat I've ever had the pleasure of calling my own.

Why Manduka?: Manduka lasts a long time. It lasts and lasts. Now that's sustainable.

What does your Manduka help you #practice?: My Manduka helps me practice jumping and arm balances. The steady strength of this mat gives me a sense of strong foundation and security. It is my home practice pad, and it has the energy of 3 years of study and training in its still sturdy shape! Very enduring.

Yoga Style: Anusara® yoga
